dc.description.abstract People always involved in the modification of their environment in such a way to accommodate their activities. Space were used by man for residential and varies other purposes. To develop the function of these spaces elements of various types were used by man. By means of the colour, texture, proportion, scale and the rhythm man tried to add a useful, live and sensible quality to the space. However a proper functioning cannot be seen in most spaces, as elements have not been arranged properly. So it is very important and very essential to study how elements should be used to make a space a successful and giving a proper function. Some spaces have been arranged with meaningless and improper elements and it has reduced the expected function. The aim of this project is to define what a main space is and to study the role and the function of elements and gathering of the main space in some selected shopping buildings in the urban context and how the elements support for the success of their function and how the elements are used to attract people of various categories.
